Chat now enabled in launcher window

That's right, in addition to all sorts of exciting Alpha release news (like, the fact that there is an Alpha release) for Warlords of Draenor we also have this little tidbit - namely, you can now chat with your friends who are logged into World of Warcraft, Diablo III, Hearthstone or any other Blizzard game directly from the launcher without even entering a game.

This functionality was apparently turned on today just before the announcement, and works by popping up a window for you to chat in, just like any one of many messenger services you might be familiar with. So there you have it, one step closer to never being out of touch with your in-game friends ever again.

Reader UI of the Week: Navigator plots a course to UI satisfaction

Each week, WoW Insider and Mathew McCurley bring you a fresh look at reader-submitted UIs as well as Addon Spotlight, which spotlights the latest user interface addons. Have a screenshot of your own UI that you'd like to submit? Send your screenshots along with info on what mods you're using to, and follow Mathew on Twitter.

Navigator of the Exodar not only has one of the coolest name-plus-title combinations I've seen yet (don't be sad, all of you Professor Oaks out there) but a slick UI to match. It's a little crowded, to be sure, but sometimes things are crowded. Sometimes we like a little bit of a lot going on.

Also, I'm going to assume that you're going with the Warhammer 40k-type Navigator in that you've just plotted the course and not actually piloted the ship, because the pilot has a lot of explaining to do. I think that I just strained a nerd muscle.

As for the title today, again I am fooled by my own supposed cleverness at four in the morning when the title of this particular article came to mind. Navigator's UI works for all three specs to accommodate any and every alt, as well as a large enough healing array for competent raid healing. The double chat box is also a great idea that a lot of people don't necessarily take advantage of. Let's see if we can work something out.
